Saving Nested Collections as Symbols

I understand collection nesting is a newer feature and hopefully this is already well into development but it would be great if there was the ability to utilize symbols with nested collections in them. I am currently working on a site where I have built out a site-map in the CMS that can be referenced on the main navigation, dropdowns, and footer. The plan was for the dropdowns to be built as a nested collection within the main site navigation but with that solution I can no longer save it as a symbol to be used across the site.

    Agreed, this is super necessary. Seems like such a basic feature, at least from a nav many websites need nested menus? Tons.

    Been a year since the last update on this. Any news?

    This is huge for me too. I have made a complex navigation for a government website. I can't symbolize the navigation. So if I need to change an item, I have to copy and paste it to every page.

    Here's my site:

    I need this so hard. You can't make a dropdown menu for an ecommerce website without nested collections as symbols. How am I supposed to make a big navigation?
